Mermaid Sighting: Mermaid Art of Karen Howard

Have you seen the art of Karen Howard? Well, if you haven’t, you are in for a treat! Karen lives in Northern California. In her worlds,”way out on the edge of this continent.” Her work is wonderfully worn and seaside inspired, and we think its just fabulous! Her hand carved mixed media pieces run the gamot from birds all the way to angels…but our absolute favorites are the mermaids!


These hand carved beauties are available over at Karen's shop, make sure to browse all of her amazing work!

Just look at that! I love how each of them has their very own unique, quirky personality. Karen’s whimsical art had us at hello! Make sure you check out all of her work overat her shop, Folk Art by Karen Howard. We guarauntee you will fall in love! She also has gallery pieces you will loveat the ART my ROCK shop as well!

Have you seen a mermaid? Well, keep your camera handy, because they are everywhere! We’d love to hear about your sightings. Please, email your pictures and stories to and your mermaid could be the next featured mermaid sighting! We can’t wait to hear your you!

A Special Gift For Mother’s Special Day

Thinking of a special gift for Mom on her special day?

For most Moms nothing is more special than the gift of time.  Mom always loves it when the family makes time for her, so how about surprising your Mom by volunteering to pet sit for her while she goes out to do some things for herself!

She’ll be grateful you were so thoughtful and she’ll be impressed you gave her the gift of time…for herself!

Jake says NO CATS

Just be sure to know your audience.

Oh, the joys of pet sitting!
